of touch. give us a behind-the-scenes look at who he is and how he relates to people. >> reporter: well, senator kerry is a statesman, a man who has been working in washington for so many years that it is easy to paint a caricature of him that way. he is a man who has developed a relationship with president obama which is what's meaningful today and here at the white hou house. he is, as kate pointed out, was dispatched by the president not just two times or a number of times during foreign sort of mini crises, but very, very delicate situations and he has successfully eased the way when he went with, for example, to afghanistan to talk to president hamid scar karzai, to encourage to run for a runoff election and he got it done. the president has seen him demonstrate his abilities as a diplomat and of course, in the debate prep with president obama, he played mitt romney during this most recent round of debate preps. it didn't start out so well, as we know, but it ended well for the president and they had a strong connection and the president in the end thought that, you know, he came t

in serious condition right now. here's the sheriff. >> all of us have to recognize that this was a heart breaking tragedy, by any standard. and many, many people will be affected by this terrible act of violence every day for the rest of their lives. and we should keep them in our thoughts and prayers. on the other hand, i think we all need to be very thankful that this incident wasn't much worse. >> we will take you live to portland for more on the shooter in just a moment here. but first, the victims. and this is where this briefing got emotional. i want you to listen here to the sheriff spokesman describe the victims and the requests on behalf of the families. >> this first statement comes from the family of cindy rule, age 54, from portland. cindy was everybody's friend, she was a wonderful person who was very caring and put others first. the family has advised us they want time and space to grieve their loss and will not be giving interviews at this time. the family will make a statement at an unspecified later date through the sheriff's office. this is a statement from the forsyth

's just 17. he knew he had to save the woman or die trying. when we met him later he tells us we had a feeling that she was still alive. we wanted to save her, to get her to a hospital. as he crawls closer, he can see her hand, her fingers shaking. cover him, cover him someone shouts. other fighters lay down cover fire. abdullah quickly ties the hose to her legs but unable to retreat. i said to myself, if i die, it's god's will that i die next to this woman he tells us. finally he makes a run for it. the rebels drag the woman back. >> the woman and her son were walking right down the street. the rebel fighters shouted at them to stay away, but too late. aleppo is crisscrossed with similar sniper alleys. some are known, but others do not reveal themselves until the first shot has been fired. despite abdullah's efforts, the woman dies. her son utterly distraught. don't die now, don't die today he pleads. answer me, mom. answer me. she's not dead. she's not dead he says as he collapses. abdullah is left wondering whether her life could have been saved if he'd reached her sooner. until r

brings us right to dan simon. he's live from suburban portland this morning. what else do we know about jacob roberts? >> reporter: well, good morning, soledad. his name surfaced less than 24 hours ago so it's still a bit early in the investigation. but the things that you would typically look at, his family life, you know, where he works, his relationships, haven't seen really any obvious signs. investigators say they haven't found a criminal history, no violent past. so at this point things don't really add up. people have been trying to look at his facebook page, esee if there are any clues there. there is a piece of artwork on his facebook page saying follow your dreams. the word "cancelled" stamped over it. could that suggest anything? at this point we don't know that. there are these reports that he was planning to move to hawaii. he was telling friends that he inherited a bunch of money and had scheduled a flight to go there, but really no truth in that as best as we can tell. everyone we have talked to seems genuinely shocked that this happened, including an ex-girlfriend who ac
to be kidding me. jay carney used the phrase in the briefing just now that the proposal from the republicans was a bunch of magic needs and fairy dust and the current standoff is continuing with neither side talking today, brooke. >> magic beans, fairy dust, la la land, it is laughable but not. it is serious stuff that affects every one of us come january 1st, 28 days to go. we know some of the reporting from dana bash on the hill, there are no formal talks going on. the president insists in speaking in this bloomberg interview, he does speak to speaker boehner all the time that the meetings are not what matter. what have you, jessica yellin what have you learned in your reporting about possible talks between the white house and the gop? >> reporter: well, first of all, i'll tell you there was a christmas party at the white house last night where members of congress came to have festivities and stand in line. they're welcome to stand in line and greet the president. and get their picture taken. so speaker boehner chose not to stand in line and shake hands with the president, first lady, get
holiday. >>> thank you, suzanne. i'm victor blackwell in for brooke baldwin. thank you for being with us today. the president is pulling the plug on his trip to hawaii to tend to urgent matters in washington. with tax hikes looming in less than a week, he's scheduled to return to the white house tomorrow, just as a deadlocked congress reconvenes days ahead of the so-called fiscal cliff. you're just six days from feeling this. now, first hit is coming on january 1st when your take home pay will drop by 2% because of a scheduled hike in the social security payroll tax. that's just the start. income taxes are set to climb too. and you'll notice that when employer gets to around the adjusted withholding, the government spending cuts, those are also scheduled for january 1st and bound to slow the economy and some argue they'll weaken the military. congress has seen this coming, but an effort to limit the damage failed last week. republican house speaker john boehner could not persuade enough members of his party to let tax rates rise on incomes over a million dollars while sparing everyone el
? >> essentially, it's what he said. al assad is not the representative of the syrian people. the u.s. and other than western countries have called on bashar al assad to step down. concretely it is a diplomatic move. it was expected. what it doesn't change and this is what the rebels and the opposition want is whether or not they get more money and more arms. they're saying in their meeting with the friends of morocco group, friends of syria group in morocco right now. they say recognition is fine, but we want weapons and more money. right now they're not getting it from the west. >> the u.s. is not give them either one of those things. do they completely sever ties with assad? how does that relationship change, if at all? >> that relationship has been essentially marabund for the last several months. there mab no ambassador there are and they're sanctions impose on the regime and there's no polical relationship with the regime of al assad with the united states. it doesn't change anything on that level. that means we're inching closer and closer to this government in exile, if you will, as bein
was that he talked about appealing to the american people. and obviously this is something that he's been used to doing as he's been campaigning and tried to do this on the fiscal cliff as well. he made it very clear he will be using the bully pulpit to try to persuade americans and to really sort of seize the moment of just how people have responded differently to the shooting. let me tell you, he had -- he has talked -- the white house talked and he laid out some things he would like to see in this event in the briefing room. he talked about the assault weapons ban, banning high capacity ammunition clips, closing the gun show loophole. and also you mentioned mental health, which i think is something that would be easier to push, kind of in a bipartisan fashion. the big question too is sort of what you talked about, dealing with the culture that glorifies violence. those were his words. how do you do that? that is still to be seen. >> reporter: >> what about the gun law? this is an affluent group of people. how would the white house bring the nra to the table in a very sort of high pressure t
salt before the storm in anticipation of the storm. this area is used to getting a lot of snowstorm. two years ago they got almost 180 inches of snowfall. and so this time they're saying, look, we're used to getting snow. the challenge is this amount of snow in such a short period of time, it's been almost two years since syracuse has seen one foot of snow all in one shot, drew. >> it is incredibly pretty pictures from my nice, warm studio, ines. we appreciate you getting up this morning and getting in it. >>> the nba's indiana pacers were actually forced to postpone last night's home game against the chicago bulls. that's a real rarity. take a look at these pictures. getting around the country today and the rest of the week will be a challenge. let's get right to the cnn weather center in atlanta. meteorologist bonnie schneider tracking the system for us. bonnie, good morning. >> good morning. >> what's the latest? it's a huge mess out there. >> it is. it's hitting the northeast hard. you have that heavy rain across new york and long island, across the connecticut sound and really

[ speaking spanish ] they call her diva. and for anyone who ever saw her on stage, it was easy to see why. she sang heartwrenching song that's spoke to the common woman, especially mexican-americans. >> translator: every song, every lyric i'm thinking of them and how i can relate to them. >> reporter: jenni rivera was born in long beach, california to mexican parents, their story of humble origins. with an interview in cnn, she spoke about how she sold records at a los angeles flea market and how the family expected cans for the meager income they could bring in selling the metal. >> translator: it is very flattering when they tell me i'm a great artist, a great entertainer. bu
at cnn world headquarters in atlanta. thank you so much for joining us. the city of kansas city shocked tonight after an apparent murder/suicide involving one of their nfl players. linebacker jovan belcher is dead. he killed himself with a gun in front of his coach, his general manager, and police officers near arrowhead stadium. about half an hour earlier police say he killed his girlfriend. from internet millionaire to fugitive, john mcafee gave a very bizarre and exclusive interview to cnn from his hideaway in central america. you're going to hear it in a moment. and jordan davis, 17 years old, today was his funeral. jordan was shot dead after an argument about loud music. we spoke to his broken-hearted father who has a message for all parents of teenagers. >>> personal tragedy from the world of sports to report to you first. police say a player for the nfl's kansas city chiefs shot and killed his girlfriend this morning and then drove to the team's training facility where he turned the gun on himself. police identified him as 25-year-old jovan belcher. he had been with the team for
a few more of the 20 small children and 6 educators taken from us will be laid to rest. we may never know all the reasons why this tragedy happened. we do know that every day since more americans are died of gun violence. we know such violence has terrible consequences for our society. if there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. over these past five days, a discussion has re-emerged as to what we might do not only to deter mass shootings in the future but to reduce the epidemic of gun violence that plagues this country every single day. it's encouraging that people of all different backgrounds and beliefs and political persuasions are willing to challenge old assumptions and change long-standing positions. that conversation has to continue, but this time the words need to lead to action. we know this is a complex issue that stirs deeply held passions and political divides, and as i said on sunday night, there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. we're going

. and leader nancy pelosi with the number of votes needed to pass. >> what folks are looking for and all of us agree on this is action. they want to see that we are focused on them, not focused on our politics here in washington. >> reporter: that was the last time this group met more than a month ago. with time running out to forge a scaled-down compromise, can they agree on even the most basic elements, extending some income tax cuts, preventing pay cuts to medicare providers, fixing the alternative minimum tax. among the options to gain votes, averting an estate tax hike toll woo republicans. there's still time but no room for error. if congress doesn't act -- >> the impact psychologically and financially on americans of another plunge in the negative territory for the economy would be extremely harmful. >> reporter: and candy, as i said, those leaders are still meeting with the president. we'll see if any of them come out and speak to us after that meeting breaks up as soon as we have any word on whether there is an agreement, we'll bring it to you. >> jessica, it's interesting to me the p
. "sanjay gupta, md" starts right now. >> hello and thanks for being with us. as you may know, i spent the past week immersed in what might be the most upsetting story i think i've ever reported. i want to start by saying, the kind of horrible violence we saw in newtown, connecticut, it isn't new. in fact, the worst school attack ever took place more than 80 years ago in bath, michigan. there was a consolidated school, the pride and joy of that community. it also meant increased property taxes and a farmer became angry about that. so for weeks he put dynamite under the local school and then eventually blew it up. 38 children died. and then he killed himself with another load of dynamite. we'll never truly know for sure why he did all that or what made the young man in newtown unload a rifle into a classroom full of first graders. but i've looked at other school shootings and they just might provide some clues. first thing you notice is when you look around newtown, everyone has that questioning look. why? what did we miss? if anything? no answers yet. just hindsight. so try and make so
